A 2014 book published by a South Korean think tank indicates Park took vows of poverty and celibacy as a young adult and lived the life of a secular monk. He came close to committing his life to a monastery, being influenced by the charitable deeds and writings of nuns and ascetics. However, deeming service to the disadvantaged while remaining within the world more effectual, he opted for following much of the discipline of monastic life while steering clear of oftentimes divisive religious organizations. He read and was influenced by Simone Weil and Dietrich Bonhoeffer.
An 80-page report produced by independent international law firm Hogan Lovells on 18 June 2014 determined there was "a strong case that certain actions committed by the North Korean government are tantamount to genocide." The report's findings differ in that particular respect from the conclusions of an earlier United Nations Commission of Inquiry. "We consider that there may be good arguments that the targeting by DPRK state-controlled officials of groups classified by the DPRK as being in the hostile class, Christians, and children of Chinese heritage with the intent to destroy such groups could be found to amount to genocide," the Hogan Lovells report states.
On December 19, 2011, Genocide Watch, an international NGO and human rights watchdog, published a report which quoted heavily from a 2011 article penned by Park for the Asia Times, entitled "North Korea and the Genocide Convention." The paper concluded North Korea was actively committing genocide as defined by the UN Genocide Convention. Park has repeatedly called for concerned persons and organizations to increase financial support towards North Korean defectors, who are able to remit money back to their families in the North, potentially making possible an organized movement to halt atrocities.
While under arrest, Park made a public confession and apology for his actions. On February 5, 2010 the North Korean government announced that it had pardoned Park. He was deported by plane to Beijing, China, from where he was then flown back to the United States. He later recanted his confession as having been made under duress, and reported having suffered torture and beatings during his detention. He was hospitalized for PTSD on multiple occasions following his detention, sometimes spanning a number of months.
Since 2008 Park has been involved with humanitarian work in support of North Korean refugees. He had become intimate friends with numerous North Korean defectors and was actively protesting North Korea's human rights violations within South Korea. He had organized numerous human rights demonstrations and conducted a hunger strike in autumn of 2009. On December 25, 2009, he crossed the Chinese border into North Korea by walking across a frozen stretch of the Tumen River. He was quickly apprehended by North Korean border guards for illegal entry. In a media interview conducted prior to his journey and published after his arrest, Park said he believed it was his duty as a Christian to do whatever he could to protest against human rights violations in the country, and that he was entering North Korea to call forcefully for the release of political prisoners, who he has argued through numerous articles are victims of genocide and crimes against humanity as defined under international law.
Park was born in Los Angeles, California. His Korean name is Park Dong-hoon (박동훈) , and his grandparents were prominent Christians in North Korea before Korea's division. He spent much of his early life in California, Mexico and Arizona, where in 2007 he was ordained as a missionary by a non-denominational Church. Prior to his involvement with North Korea-related work, Park was active as a missionary in Sonora, Mexico, where he had assisted in the organization and delivery of humanitarian relief over several years.
As a victim of North Korean torture, Park is preparing to file a lawsuit in the U.S. Federal Court under the Torture Victims Protection Act of 1991.

In December 2009 he was detained in North Korea for illegal entry after crossing the Sino-Korean border on Christmas Day to protest against the country's human rights situation. He was released in February 2010 after being detained for 43 days. He reported having suffered torture during his detention.
Blurt indicated the name of his music project as Malheur V.O.L., Malheur being the French word for "affliction" and V.O.L. being an acronym for "La Violencia del Amor," the title of a work by Oscar Romero. The project moniker is also directly inspired by Simone Weil's 1942 essay "L'amour de Dieu et le malheur."
